Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
NSERC USRA Grant
Full-time Research | All students | February 24, 2020
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) sponsors annual Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA). These summer student awards are intended to stimulate student interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering, encourage student interest in graduate studies and promote a research career in these fields. Students gain research work experience that complements their studies.
A faculty supervisor oversees the work of the award recipient. Potential faculty supervisors for 2018 application have a minimum of $5,625 in funding ($4,500 from NSERC + $1,125 minimum contribution from the university/faculty supervisor) for 16 weeks of full-time work.
